Since it’s quite literally my job to sit and surf the internet for entertainment news all day, I’m quite surprised when I come across a what appears to be a pretty major project I’ve heard nothing about. And I never get my movie news from IMDB.
So I was very surprised when I was looking up two actors over the weekend (Sam Worthington from Terminator Salvation, and Alexs Davalos from Chronicles of Riddick) and found that both of them were cast in a movie called Clash of the Titans. Here’s the rundown of the cast so far:
Sam Worthington – Perseus
Liam Neeson – Zeus
Ralph Finnes – Hades
Gemma Arterton – Io
Danny Huston – Poseidon
Alexa Davalos – Andromeda
But despite an all-star cast, the project is being directed by Louis Leterrier of Transporter and Incredible Hulk fame, and is actually a remake of an early ’80s movie about the Greek myth of Perseus.
So…what the hell? What is the project and why haven’t I heard word one about it? How did Leterrier wrangle in all these big names? Will this be any good? Better question: Will this be better than Thor? Both are due out in 2010, so I guess we’ll have a whole lot of godly warfare on our hands next summer.
